Bring awareness to hospitals and doctors who are not treating patients correctly. Share your stories! Thank you!
Over prescribing medicine for your own benefit, or finical gain is not how you help an injured person..
Please share and educate others. If this happened to you else where please leave comments. Show what places are not treating people fairly. I have quite a bit of paperwork and lot with attorneys. I’ll be gathering more information as I go through this process thank you!
I broke both my legs January 23 2015. Community East Hospital told me nothing was wrong. I was left first with one severed heel for over 20 hours. Before they performed surgery, and took me between 2 and 4 hours to convince them my other heel was severed as well. I was put into isolation for my entire stay, Where I was not fed for 3 days. Finally when I was released 4 days later. I kept seeing their doctor’s, who said everything was in my head. Community Health Network kept trying to feed me depression pills saying I was delusional. Everything was in my head. Additional to the fact I was under their care for 4 months in casts on both legs, that smelled so awfully bad. I kept requesting they changed them as they was bothering me extremely bad, they refused to change the cast on both my legs, entire time under their care. I finally personally removed my own cast after 4 months when I couldn’t take the smell and irritation no more. My skin was coming off underneath my cast. I asked numerous times to clean my legs. Remove and put on new cast’s and check everything. I was advised it was not necessary. I spent 4 months in a wheelchair totally unable to walk. I personally taught myself everything all over again without the help of Community Health Network. I will say my stay and the care I received was the most deplorable conditions, and treatment I ever received in my life. I hope no one else ever goes through what I have encountered with their doctor’s. Finally after switching to IU health network, I got a team of doctors to help me. I have now had over 20 surgeries and procedures since leaving the care of Community Health Network. Not only did they not feed me for 3 days, They did not help me through anything. My gull bladder had grown into my liver. My heart rate was abnormal, lots due to the medication they tried to put me on trying to push pills. I told them from day one. I don’t want pills, let me go back work if I can, just help me, they said your okay. A person doesn’t fall 26 feet land on pavement and say someone with 2 broken legs are okay. They neglected me, first pumping lots of drugs in me immediately after my fall, then saying it was meth. Which I have never seen or touched meth in my life, there for that was a lie. I had to prove it to everyone, even disability court, today I’m legally disabled. Since leaving Community Health Network’s care, I found out both my knees, ankles, my hip, and shoulder was torn. I also found out my shoulder had been dislocated the entire time. They said my spine was okay, which is another lie. I have 2 or 3 herniated disc, 6 intrusion, and a cyst between my s1 and s2. I have script’s, A tote full of medication. From the way they handled my situation. By the time I got the help I needed, I couldn’t walk, had braces up both my legs. I was prescribed 180 oxy 20’s, 90 morphine 30’s, 180 gabapentine 600, 90 tizazidine, and 6 or more other medication. All while they were accusing me of drug abuse, as I sit today with several scripts. I am doing this today, To bring awareness as you neglected me as a patient, almost killed me with medication, and think treating people the way u do is okay, when it’s not okay. I start process for back surgery next week. I had surgery on my right hip Jan 2019, right knee May 2019, left knee June 2019, and shoulder July 19 2019. I had my gull bladder removed 10-23-2015 “I checked the dates” . Blood was found in my Intestines. I had kidney surgery 2016 I believe. I had 4 endoscopy, 4 colonoscopy, 1 pill cam, 1 heart catheter, plus lots other procedure’s done. I finally on my own found a doctor who founded orthopedic surgery practices from IU North. He’s also in Eskenazi. So I see him at IU North hospital, I also have surgery at both of his offices IU North Hospital, and Eskenazi Hospital, also IU Methodist Hospital. Had I not found surgeons on my own. I still wouldn’t be walking today, or as far as I am. Reality is, I probably would of eventually died, I had infection in my leg’s, my arm, my hip, and I still fall because of my back. I feel I will eventually be able to work full time again. Thank’s to the wonderful staff at Dr Ertle’s office. Helping me get everything back together. Having him tell me my shoulder been dislocated for over 5 years, goes to show Community Health Network was not concerned about my health care. I will never recommend Community Health Network to anyone, who leaves a patient in icu isolation with only 4 to 6 rooms, and doesn’t feed them for 3 days. With 2 broken legs, and says I’m sorry I forgot! Then leaves again. This network I’m sure is liable for patient’s on pills, patient’s deaths, and patient’s who today are still disabled because of their negligence, and not doing what’s best for the patient’s. I myself got to the point, I would step and fall down. They put in my disability report I didn’t try hard enough. When they was requesting me to do jumping jacks, and other strenuous exercise. When I had 2 torn knee caps, 2 torn ankles, 1 torn hip, and 1 torn shoulder. How can a person do anything with injuries this severe? Leaving my gull bladder in 9 months until it grew into my liver wasn’t helping my situation either. By the time it was removed, it was bigger than my hand and purple, by this point I was having breathing difficulties. I’ll be happy to share my story with the media, Show document’s I have of medical malpractice. Maybe it will protect someone else from being treated unfairly, and treated the way I was treated. Before my fall I worked everyday of my life. All they wanted to tell me was you will never walk again. Everything was in my head. Finally getting answers nothing is in my head. They neglected me and committed a severe case of medical malpractice. Leaving me injured and wouldn’t listen to me as a patient. Community Health Network doctor’s wanted to make up stuff, say this is what’s wrong. I seen one their doctor’s Terry Iwoski, and he couldn’t talk to me without his eyes rolling in the back of his head. He was so high on medication. I quit seeing him when he tried telling me everything was in my head. I needed Prozac. Reality was I had a lot wrong, It has taken several surgeries to fix the issues. I keep pushing towards being better and able to work again. Community Health Network is terrible. Hopefully my story, what I went through, still going through will help someone else. I’m grateful for the state, and for the doctor’s helping me today. Hopefully over the course of the next 4 years, I can be back to where I was before my fall. Hopefully I will be able to do the things I did before I fell. I hope anyone else who has these kind of issues. Don’t give up and switch practices, find doctor’s on your own. Save all your documents, all your scripts, and prepare for a long lengthy battle against these crooked people. I will never refer anyone or go back to Community Health Network. I learned a valuable lesson with this as well, You can not trust all doctor’s. They don’t care about your health. They are getting paid, and going home normally. This hopefully will help other’s facing a similar situation, as I have been forced to face. And for the doctor’s who has stepped up to help me, Dr Ertle and Dr Riff, Tracy Warner, and the State and there Doctor’s, who agreed I was severely injured. I would like to say thanks. Today I’m walking without braces, and I’m doing better. I start process for back surgery this week. For anyone considering Community Health Network, Steer clear unless u trust your life with people who don’t care what happens to you. Or your future, they purposely tried to keep me from getting the help I needed from the state. Saying it all was in my head. If you need help go to IU North in Carmel Indiana, and have them help u get set up. Be honest, talk to them, and they will help you. This has changed my life forever. I’ll be in pain forever. Due to how long it took me to get the help I needed. I’m grateful I am not wearing braces up to my knees. I’m getting my movements back, and life is steadily becoming normal as it will be again. I hope no one ever goes through what I have with this network of crooked doctors. Only there for there own benefit. Hopefully this will help others who face a similar situation.
Mind you I have photos of every surgery and procedure. All of the tears, the extremely large gull bladder, and all the injuries I have sustained.
I did have one good doctor that is in the Network. She works on her own, Tracy Warner foot podiatrist. She has helped me get the necessary help and said i was injured. She couldn’t believe how they treated me. I still see her today. She literally is the only doctor from the network that knew something was wrong listen to me. Told me I need helped and is the one who said it’s in my spine.. Without her knowledge I wouldn’t of been able to seek medical attention on my own for these injuries. Tracy has been a critical role in helping me throughout this process of people not wanting to help. She got me braces and where I least wasn’t falling 24 7. For that I will tell her thank you for everything she has done for me. She is a wonderful doctor who has a patient’s best interest in situations like mine. I know the odd’s of breaking both legs, and the injuries I sustained is rare. But when it happens, The doctor’s need to listen and do the right thing. A person doesn’t go to hospital and doctor’s over 75 to 100 times for no reason. That is just plain non sense and not okay..
I fixed a few dates and surgeries. After IU North called me, and validated some of my procedures today. While pre op for start of back injections. So I can start the process for back surgery. So I can fix the problems coming from my spine. So I don’t fall. I will be 1 step closer to being normal as I can again..
Surgeons who are helping me still today, and helped me through this process, when I explained everything to them, put forth effort to fix everything for me.
